We believe that The Old Electric has a unique opportunity to understand and to support people in their formal educational endeavours at all ages. We are open to dialogue from students, teachers, professors and education administrators. We have many years of working in participatory and learning aspects of creative arts and fully understand how partnerships can be developed to best meet the needs of all concerned.
Whilst no-one is able to currently stage productions as we have been used to doing, we hope to host a broad range of performative events in the not-too-distant future. We know that it will be essential to rebuild people’s confidence in being in the world again and that specially developed, small-numbers activities provided in safe environments and with a key focus on having fun and feeling part of something bigger will be essential. We’d love to hear from you about how we can support your theatre-going/venue-visiting activity in the future.
We are proud to be connected with a few education establishments in our local area in different ways, however, we hope to be able to broaden the range of activities and partnerships that we can offer to teachers, students and schools as a whole.
We are also really supportive of working within the informal education sector and have lots of experience in adult learning including ESOL teaching.
Arts Award; we have in-house experts on delivering this QCA recognised framework of qualifications from Discover (aged 5+) to Gold (equivalent to an A Level) aimed at those end under 25 years. This practical route to exploring how specific creative skills, leadership, reflection and social connections can be nurtured through the arts is a great asset that we consider ourselves to be leaders in the area in delivering for whatever group may be interested; via formal or informal establishments.
We are happy to discuss how in-school productions, workshops, events or talks might best work for you; including delivering online as needed. Here’s some examples of ways in which we could work with your school, some of which we are happy to provide free of charge or as part of an ongoing relationship, some we will need to charge for, in order to cover our costs:
We already consult with a broad range of teachers in our network and are incredibly grateful to them for their insight and support; we hope to develop a more formal Education Advisory Group when things are a little more settled in the world! Please do let us know if you would like to be part of this to provide your feedback in relation to spaces, support materials and projects.
